it an unconstitutional coup and a seizure of power and john kerry arrived in ukraine and in a show of support he will meet with the new government and it's part of a u.s. plan to increase diplomatic pressure on moscow. russia risks being shut out by the g 8 industrial summit and they are not backing off and russia says troops were sent there at the request of ousted president viktor yanukovych and phil is in kiev and, phil, another department, russian putin pulled out troops on the exercise on the border of ukraine, is that a sign at all of russia changing its position in crimea? >> not in crimea, stephanie, those troops that are on the peninsula are still there, still the people in kiev woke this morning to the welcome news that at least the war games that have been conducted close to the borders are over but nevertheless the russia military president and the might is still on the minds of people here. outside st. petersburg in russia on monday putin observed the might. war games russia says and a glimpse nonetheless of the military fire power. that same overwhelming force has captured the peni

of his presidency. he's dispatching the secretary of state john kerry to kiev. let's check in with our white house correspondent. >> reporter: secretary kerry is making tough statements. he'll travel to ukraine and meet with new leaders there and offer strong u.s. support. the senior administration officials too have been making these, offering these warnings hammering russian president put decision-making on this saying he miscalculated as well as beefing up warnings that we will isolate with other nations russia internationally. the secretary of state is preparing for an emergency trip to the center of the crisis. it comes after president obama and his national security team worked through the weekend of the dangerous escalating situation in ukraine. the president spoke by phone with leaders of canada, france, germany, poland, the uk after an hour and a half call with vladimir putin himself. senior administration officials say obama flatly rejected putin's reasons for entering ukraine and taking over crimea, telling him to back out. but also offering ways forward through dialogue or

precarious. secretary kerry said it bluntly this is a brazen act of aggression of russia. the u.s. just doesn't know whether putin is moving toward a confrontation across ukraine that would challenge the new government in kiev or whether this is really going to be limited more to the areas most strategic to russia in the crimea where the russian fleet is based. as one person said it to me last night, we are really playing this by ear. secretary kerry had strong words about the diplomatic and economic consequences that russia will pay for this action but it's obvious in every statement that's made that the u.s. does not seek, does not want a military challenge to this action. i was told that not a ship is moving in the mediterranean, not have been put on maneuvers that might be seen as provocative. for much the response is diplomatic and perhaps sanctions and economic. >> david, now we understand that americans now understand seemingly that putin does not care what we think, does not care about the language that secretary kerry used yesterday on american television, is it now sort of a counund
, i want to thank you. and god bless all of you. >> secretary of state john kerry will be speaking for the american israel public affairs committee. his speech is scheduled to get underway at about 6 p.m. eastern. live coverage starts at 5:00 with her marked by senator chuck schumer of new york. and secretary kerry will leave tonight for ukraine. reuters is running a story about an increasing military threat that says, in part, russia's thek sea fleet has told forces in crimea to surrender. if they do not surrender by 5 a.m. tomorrow, a real assault will be started in the divisions of armed forces across crimea. that again, from reuters. earlier today at aipac, senator russiacain commented on and the ukraine. here's what he -- a bit of what he had to say. [video clip] >> i come to you with a heavy heart of what is happening in the ukraine. it is directly related to what is happening in the middle east him and obviously we know that what happens in the you middle east -- in the middle east is vital to the existence of the state of his -- israel. i will not go through the history of
of the cold war. tomorrow, secretary of state john kerry is set to go to kiev where the crisis began. that's where we saw the deadly protests. the latest action is in crimea, a region along the black sea. strategically important and socially as well. it is important to russia because the russian navy has a base there. a warm water port here to the black sea. russian officials say they're trying to protect their citizens in the region, which is dubious to hear from many analysts. secretary of state called that a trumped up excuse. we have team fox coverage. wendell is live with reaction from the white house. first, let's get to eric shawn at the united nations. we're expecting a meeting to happen within the hour. right? >> yes, that meeting of the emergency meeting of the security council, 30 minutes from now here at the u.n. the third time the security council diplomats have gathered during the crisis. russia has called for the meeting so we'll have to see the implications of that. perhaps if it had to do with the supposed deadline. there's -- the ukrainian ambassador tells us there is a t
condemning moscow. secretary of state john kerry heading to kiev to show u.s. support for ukraine's new leaders, calling russia's actions a stunning and willful invasion. we need to bring in diana magness live in ukraine for us this morning. get us up to speed. what is happening at this hour? >> reporter: hi, christine. well, there are several military bases in crimea which are surrounded by troops. also, we're hearing from ukrainian authorities that several border posts overnight were attacked by these same military troops. they are wearing, though, insignia. again, russia has not acknowledged that these troops are theirs. on the streets of simferopol, where i am now, it is very calm. it doesn't feel as though there is an invasion or occupation as such. there are troops, though, darted around various locations, for example in front of the main regional and administration building. what you set a sense from here on the ground is that this is more of a war of information. so, there are people who are watching russian tv who believe one story, who believe that ultra nationalists are en ro
influence inside that state. >> early ray, secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. would hold russia directly responsible to any escalation in the ukraine. ahn kerry offered ukraine package of loan guarantees and send a warning to moscow. >> none of us want to escalate this so that it becomes the kind of confrontation where people cannot find a reasonable path a result,d where, as you're stuck in a place that's very hard to climb down from. slowlyian markets are recovering from monday's selloff, the biggest loss in five years in the ruble dropped to a record low. non-russian companies with exposure are still worried about their aspects. >> how much of this is a shadow about what is going on in ukraine? >> if it deteriorates, we all have ramifications in terms of economic activity. i sincerely hope it gets resolved before that. welcome back. i am mark barton. 6:32 a.m. in london and is getting breaking earnings from the second biggest sportswear maker, adidas sporting goods company, number two after nike and earnings for the fourth quarter beating estimates. fourth quarter net income
. this is a declaration of war by vladimir putin. u.s. secretary of state john kerry condemning russia's actions and will travel to kiev tomorrow for talks with the new ukrainian government. >> president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate manner. fears he's going to lose on the international stage. russia is going to lose. >> steve, it's the one possible benefit of seeing russian aggression here, but actually, it could boost popular support for the new ukrainian government. >> i'm not sure about that, julia. i think this is a country that's split top to bottom, east to west, north to south. the russians invaded crimea. it is the russian troops in force with a lot of military hardware. because they said and putin said with the backing on the russian parliament they were defending the interest of russian speakers, just to remind viewers, crimea was russian. 58% of the minimum of the population believe themselves to be russian. it's a similar story in the east of the country, as well. i don't know if you can hear behind me, we've got pro government demonstrations behind me and pro r
, with secretary kerry and with the leaders of the u.s. congress. we had very good meetings. i thank them for their strong support for israel. [applause] for our security, including in the vital area of missile defense. i said that the greatest threat to our common security is that of a nuclear-armed iran. we must prevent iran from having the capability to produce nuclear weapons. and i want to reiterate that point, not just, to prevent them from having the weapon, but to prevent them from having the capacity to make the weapon. [applause] that means we must dismantle iran's heavy water reactor and its underground enrichment facilities. we must get rid of iran's centrifuges and its stockpiles of enriched-uranium and we must that iran fully divulge the military dimensions of its nuclear program. now 17 countries around the world have peaceful nuclear energy programs. they're doing this without spinning centrifuges, without enriching uranium, without operating heavy water facilities, and without conducting military nuclear research. you know why iran insists on doing all of these things tha
as prime minister today. secretary of state john kerry says the u.s. is formulating a $1 billion loan guarantee for the ukraine. kerry also warned against intervention by russia. kiev inlcote is in independence square last night. he filed this report. >> welcome to kiev's independence square, a place that nearly a week after the ousting of former president yanukovych remains the center of power in this country. that is something that is very much on display today in independence square. on the stage, the politicians have come to present their candidates for the country's new government. to receive the people's blessing. distrust of politicians in this country runs very deep even when it comes to those politicians that were in the opposition to yanukovych that stood with the protesters here just a week ago. when you look around independence square, you quickly realize that the real power in kiev today is here with the people on the square. a constituency of maybe tens of thousands in a country of 45 million. who is calling the shots? right here, as far as i can tell, it looks like it i
kerry called it an incredible actor rick -- backed of aggression. act of aggression. >> in my opinion, the way europe has reacted is exactly the way they should react, showing that this is totally unacceptable. but at the moment, talking mostly about economic and npr sanctions, throwing rush out of sochi, noot attending mention of military integration at this stage. i think that is the correct approach. it gives the russians, gives putin an opportunity to come to the party and let the whole situation calmed down. at history, you mentioned the stalin comparison. have you think is will play out? will it lead to the next batch where will it lead in the next one month to two months? what putining that will demand and should be given is formalization of the agreements that again a covert yanakovic gavet him. if they get that confirmation, for theer reasons russian incursion in crimea seem to disappear. then putin needs to come to the table. at the moment, the west is reacting as if russia is strong. russia has a, number of problems. the economy slowed down last year. brics,een as one of th
. you mentioned the pivot to asia. nominally there is a pivot to asia. secretary of state kerry and vice president biden both made special trips to asia to reassure the asians that it was real because they doubted that the commitment was real. the s decided to go it alone in the middle east because they doubted our commitment to syria. in all these areas of the world the sense is the united states is pulling back. if we cut the defense forces like this, they are going to start making deals with whoever they need to in those parts of the world. that will be to our detriment, for sure. >> in the past, in the '90s when bill clinton cut the defense budget to 3% of gdp of the overall economy from about 5.5% during the reagan era, the republicans put a floor under it. we had to build up post 9/11. where are are the republicans standing up and making any critique of this? >> there is little opposition. the opposition you hear, the opposition to base closings is the wrong opposition. we need to cut some of the overhead to focus on real war-fighting capabilities. there is an isolationist mood tha
coverage continues with secretary of state john kerry and new york senator john schumer, beginning at 5:00 p.m. eastern on c-span three. >> next, the future of u.s.-afghanistan relations. speakers include former special representative for afghanistan marc grossman. this is hosted by the u.s. institute of peace. this panel is one hour and 10 minutes. welcome on behalf of u.s. ip. i would like to thank all of you for coming, and our distinguished guests. we also want to thank our panelists for this first panel which is titled "the united states and afghanistan, the longview. view.the long -- the longview." given policy relations of late, there is lots of focus on the security transition and the upcoming political transition in 2014 in particular. i do think in terms of the current discourse in washington, talking about life beyond 2014 is taking a long view. i think that one of the objectives for today is to try to look at future relations between the u.s. and pakistan beyond 2014. there is a longer-term interest in this relationship. i think it is also important that we have a balanced a
.s. secretary of state john kerry and assistant secretary of state victoria nuland, will both visit the ukrainian capital of kiev on tuesday. the u.s. defense department says it is suspending military exchange programs with russia. such contacts are aimed at reducing the chance of an emergency resulting from a misunderstanding. the announcement came as russia's president vladimir putin paid a surprise visit to inspect military exercises, in russia's western districts. they include areas near the border with ukraine. it was putin's first inspection of troops since he gained approval from the upper house to deploy forces in ukraine. representatives at the united nations security council held their third emergency meeting in four days. russia's ambassador criticized ukraine's government for trying to persecute ethnic russians. >> translator: the rights and freedoms of people in ukraine are being threatened. we would like to emphasize once again that the actions of our military are appropriate and legitimate. >> the u.s. ambassador dismissed the claims. samantha power said there's no da
kerry and -- was absolutely right and the president was absolutely right in telling russian president putin that he he better think twice before he considers any kind of military intervention in ukraine. that is not something that can be or should be tolerated, and russia must understand that it cannot be a business as usual. if they make any military moves into ukraine, it's going to cost them a great deal in their relationships with the united states and with our european allies in the european union. it can't be business as usual. which leads me to iran. we are in very delicate negotiations with iran right now. the one thing that everybody agrees the p-5 plus one is that at the end of the day iran must not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. i have been very critical of the iranian regime through the years and continue to be so. what i. me especially is that while they are negotiating with us, they are continuing to wreak havoc in all different parts of the world. iran remains the leading supporter of terrorism throughout the world. in fact, if we look just next door into syria, a
exercises that were linked to kiev. john kerry is set to arrive in kiev in just a few hours to show support for the new ukrainian government. as we're speaking, vladimir putin is holding a press conference. you can see right now, take a look at the market reaction as dow futures are up by 162 points. that would be gaining back more than the losses of yesterday. this comes after monday's tumble where you did see stocks lower. right now, the major european averages are higher. the dax in germany up by 1 is.5% and the if it cac in london up .7%. right now, stocks are up about 6% in moscow. yesterday, the stocks in moscow were down close to 11%. joe, right now, over to you. >> that 60 billion number is familiar. >> it's more than the olympics, right? >> yeah. this must have gotten vladimir's attention, yeah. let's check some of the other markets this morning. oil and a lot of the commodities were up yesterday. they're easing a little bit today, as you can see. that will bring some relief. check out the ten year. the ten-year has been, obviously, trading on things other than the situation in ukr
support. and join us later when secretary of state john kerry will speak at the 2014 aipac conference, the group is holding their yearly policy conference. you can watch secretary kerry's remarks live at about 5 p.m. eastern on our companion network, c-span. >> the internet as we know it today bears no resemblance to monopoly telephone service back in the 1930 and '40s and '50s. and what the courts have said and what the congress supports is if i walk in to a grocery store and i buy a gallon of milk and pay $3.50 a gallon, if i buy ten gallons, i pay $35 for all ten gallons. well, tom wheeler's fcc wants to say you can use as much milk as you want, and you only have to pay $3.50. that's just wrong. netflix is the biggest user of the internet as people download their movies. sometimes they're as much of 30% of the volume of the internet, obviously, they should pay more than someone who uses the internet once a month. i'm being very sum policic, but that -- simplistic, but that's the genesis. and these companies have spent billions and billions of dollars to is the up their systems and
that secretary kerry would like and how, the so-called modern view, with the balance of power was a thing of the past and we only saw in the 19th century. that's not how they view the world, and it leads me to play this is something we should be recognizing as well. i leave you with this. the real question is, we will be going through a specific measures about things that should be done here and we will discuss that in response to the question, i believe some of the details for that but i will leave you with two thoughts. the short run to me is not as important as the long run. the long run i think we need to restart rebuilding our strategic position, signal that american retrenchment is over. this will go a long way to signaling to russia and to china and other countries that is long grip and american power is going to be reversed. and the second thing we have to start thinking carefully about is we need to stop thinking of military power as a metaphor for military intervention. we used to understand very well that the deterrent force of military power, today much of that has been lost p
defense ministry. secretary of state john kerry, he is scheduled to go to kiev tomorrow after russian troops entered crimea over the weekend. the associated press says russia issued ultimatum for surrender of two ukraine yap warships in crimea. secretary kerry said the international community could kick russia out of the g8 holding meetings in sochi in june and they could freeze assets if russia does not withdraw the occupation. he is scheduled to make remarks shortly from the state department after a meeting with the prime minister of moldova. we'll bring you remarks on companion network c-span. russian president vladmir putin said he sent troops to protect russian personnel in military bases in southern ukraine after the ouster of ukraine's president. secretary of state kerry will speak to the american israel public affairs committee meeting, aipac. we will have the secretary's remarks live from the conference on our companion network c-span. those remarks are scheduled to start at 5:00 eastern time. at the pentagon -- >> internet as we know it today, bears no resemblance to monopol
>> that is correct -- u.s. policy? that is correct. >> other than secretary kerry is call, have there been any other ukraine related conversations at the senior level? has the secretary spoken to any ukrainian officials? do with theto russians on this one? >> i do not have any additional calls to read out for you. the call that vice president biden had with the interim ukrainian prime minister. this is an issue that is being closely watched and looked at and discussed internally in the administration. >> i want to make sure i am accurate. the secretary spoke today? yesterday? specifically about ukraine and let russia may or may not be doing there. are those the only two calls he has had this week? >> those are the two calls he has had this week, yes. onspoke with him also sunday, which you were aware of. and saturday. >> he has spoken to him four times in six days. >> that is correct. they also talked about syria and middle east peace. >> today? >> yes. moscow could try to have a heavy hand on what is going on in the ukraine? >> this is an issue we are very closely engaged with. secretary kerry call
john kerry was in kiev arriving with $1 billion loan package for the country's faltering economy the secretary issued a forceful rebuttal to russia and offered the kremlin a diplomatic off-ramp to the 21st century. >> we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression in its diplomacy and respect for sovereignty not unilateral force that can best solve disputes like this in 291st century. this is the 21st century, and we should not see nations step backwards to behave in 19th or 20th century fashion. there are ways to resolve these differences, great nations choose to do that appropriately. >> but given president putin's statements on ukraine thus far, it's clear that that off-ramp will remain unused for the moment. putin made fairly ludicrous statements. he said the soldiers in the ukraine, those 6,000 men patrolling cry meia, those were not russian forces at all. he insisted they were, quote, local defense forces and call the people's uprising against ukrainian president viktor yanukovych an unconstitutional coup and said they were sitting in a laboratory and running experim

there in the crimea. you have got president obama sending secretary of state john kerry to kiev. impacth is this going to this showdown between the ukraine and russia? >> it really depends very much what president obama decides to do and what president putin decides to do. is there is for sending ground troops in, and in many ways unless foreign ground troops are going, it seems difficult to see how external powers can exercise any direct influence on what happens on the ground. clearly what the american government would try to do is get russia to withdraw by threatening various sorts of bees of pressure that can applied economically, politically on the international stage. i guess that's what they are going to try to do. signals theto kiev u.s. believes key evidence in the right and russia is in the wrong and will do what it can to bring about a resolution of the issue, but as far as putin is concerned, i don't think this will cut much ice with him. he sees this as being just another instance of when the united states and europe have sought to extend their influence into what he sees as russia's trad

.s. secretary of state john kerry says the crisis in the ukraine doesn't need to lead to conflict between the kremlin and europe. william hague urged all parties to cooperate. >> this is not a zero sum game. it is not a west versus east, it should not be. it is not russia or the united states or other choices. this is about people of ukraine and ukrainians making their choice about their future. >> meanwhile russia's foreign minister said that aid to ukraine should only be provided to "legitimate ukrainian authorities." we're joined by jim from moscow. it may not be a zero sum game as far as kerry is concerned but it is as far as vladimir putin's concerned, isn't it? he's been incredibly silent over the last two weeks. what's going on with him here? >> reporter: that's right. what happens next will obviously be very much dependent on what vladimir putin does next, and so far we simply haven't heard from the guy. he had a meeting yesterday with his top security council but no information came out of that and i think that this is really what's driving the uncertainty about what russia does
of state john kerry warned russia against military action saying it would be a, quote, grave mistake. kerry saying yesterday the u.s. could offer a billion dollars of loan guarantees but the state department maybe wants some of that back later, issuing a statement that the u.s. is considering, quote, a range of options, including loan guarantees. they left the number out and noted as kerry did, that the decision has not been made. u.s. officials have said several pieces have to fall into place before any aid can be given. you have to have a government. there's not much the u.s. can do. that government has to signal intentions for reform along the lines that the imf was sort of laid out. those reforms include exchange rate flexibility. michelle broke that story the other day that they are moving towards that. fiscal consolidation getting its budget under control. the imf will take the lead and the u.s. and the west has to balance all of this in i way that doesn't unnecessarily antagonize russia. >> forget about it. how do you do that? especially since you have militia all over crimea. >> you

secretary kerry, president of the united states said on so many occasions that war will end militarily, there has to be some political end to this conflict and there ought to be some way to see if reconciliation is possible. but there's a second principle as well which is, i always felt in the time that had this responsibility that this is kind of diplomacy got to be backed by force. . . certainly makes you think about it very carefully and watching the film on women and women's right is what is this reconciliation all about. and that is about an afghanistan that works with the rule of law and that supports the rights and responsibilities of all citizens, but particularly women. on the questions of reconciliation i'm sure they are still high on the administration's agenda but the principles remain very much the same. the second point you asked me to talk about our the elections. he's done a wonderful job on that. two things that are important to me. one is what is the outcome here and it is an election that is seen by most afghans as legitimate and a leader as someone they c

. would be nice. >> we have a lot going on obviously. secretary of state kerry was talking about the ukraine. mika would like to read. >> charles krauthammer. "the washington post" putin's ukraine gambit. whatever anything obama says says or does would stop anyone remains unquestionable. but surely the west has more financial clout than crush's extraction economy that exports little but oil, gas, and vodka. it's a lot of money but less than one half of one-tenth of 1% if the combined eu and u.s. gdp and treasurer is preferable to compensat expending blood. putin keeps ratcheting up the pressure. can this administration puster the counterpressure to give ukraine a chance to breathe? >> the secretary said yesterday russia is complaining about other on countries. they should listen to themselves about that and not be hi hypocritical about it. the secretary talked about an ifm loan and about europe doing more and i think folks are looking into that. the ifm is there in kiev talking about this and, yes, a lot more money in the west and ukraine wants to lean towards the west. i think e

seems to be at the epicenter of phrases like the kerry trade. the yen, the weaker it gets, of course, really helps a country like japan because they're an export market although the asterisk for the last couple of years especially after the horrible nuclear issues they've had recently is energy when your currency gets weak it might be good for exports but you pay a lot for energy. let's harken back to another time, the 1930s where the whole better thy neighbor scenario was born and what it basically amounted to was over simplified quickie is that everybody wants to weaken their currency, everybody wants to be king exporter, especially when they're so very few economies that rely on consumption within their borders like the u.s. so now think today in china. okay? remember, it was mid 2005, the peg to the dollar was thrown out the window. and for the most part, i've sense the chinese currency has been moving up. well, recently that isn't the case. it's moving down. with a variety of explanations. but how about the easy explanation? i'm not theying it's the case but it doesn't seem to g
